Learning is one of my favorite pastimes, with respect to both academics and personal knowledge. I believe that knowledge is power; it is the means with which one can improve one's life. Cooperating with others in this process is meaningful to me, and it is also a lot of fun. I am currently a student and I love studying with others. We bounce ideas off of each other in order to achieve the best understanding of the material at hand, and that is one of if not the best way to learn. I have also had professional experience doing just that, teaching full stack web development at the reputable bootcamp Coding Dojo, as well as tutoring students at my former company, College Steps.
Here is a little bit of info about who I am and what I am interested in. Writing and programming are my marketable skills, which I wish to use to expand understanding in the fields of psychology and biology. My long term career goal is to make advances in the field of biotechnology, particularly in its medicinal application. I have a basic knowledge of data science, which is the field I need to study in order to reach this goal. I will be pursuing a graduate degree in that soon enough; for now, I am investing my skills in helping others in their pursuit of knowledge, as well contributing to web and app development efforts.
When tutoring, I think it is important for my interaction with my student to be respectful and positive. I have been tutored before, and I know what it is like to feel inferior or inadequate, so I take extra steps to make sure that that is not the perception I am giving off. The best way of doing that is relating to my student, getting on the same page as them, and never judging their level of knowledge of the subject. I am not someone who knows everything; in some fields, I have little to no knowledge. We are all equally capable of learning at any point in time; in fact, I consistently find that I learn from the students I am tutoring.
That being said, I am especially proficient in writing and programming, and my goal is to help others learn those very effectively.
